What a lovely surprise to receive the January issue of THE WOMAN WRITER under the brand new editorship of Penny Legg. What a fascinating writer with so much experience of life, travel (she lived in Bangladesh and the British West Indies) and so many other places. A freelance journalist and photographer, she somehow manages to enjoy numerous hobbies; she's a PADI Master scuba diver, she directs amateur dramatics, loves ballroom dancing and Scottish country dancing and seems to like us at the Society of Women Writers & Journalists - which is great!Penny lives in Southampton and makes the journey to London regularly to meet us and plan some of the wonderful events coming up this year. For people (we now welcome men to the Society), who love to write, do check out our website at and see what's on offer for professional writers and those wanting to learn more about this, the oldest and most prestigious of writing organisations.
